Hi Everyone!

It’s me again, Rocky G.! I’m doing really great! I’m on my new food for my kidneys and that’s going pretty well. The stuff made me throw up at first, but I’m used to it now. The best part is that my eyes are SO much better! I’m on two different kinds of prescription drops that cost $150 together about every two months, and these help, but the BEST thing ever is my foster mom started putting extra virgin coconut oil in my eyes twice and day and this has made the biggest difference ever! I still don’t see very well, but there hasn’t been any recent talk about having surgery lately, so that’s a good thing since I can still see light and dark and some shadows.

I’m still doing really great with not using the house as a bathroom (I still don’t understand why any dog would want to do that) and I really like being home. When we travel, I’m cool, but I’m always on the alert and don’t relax too much. I like to sleep pretty much all day in order to conserve my energy because when my foster mom gets home, I like to glue myself to her side. I don’t get weird if she has to get up and do other stuff, though (I’m not pushy), but I will sit up and listen for her until she sits down again. Boy, do I love it if she’s there and I can just lie next to her and get a nice pet and a scratch or two. I sigh deeply and snuggle in. It’s the best part of my day.

Anyway, gotta go, getting sleepy.
